Subject: Would anyone like to work on transcribing lyrics?

Written By: ChuckyG on 07/19/02 at 11:20 a.m.

I am currently trying to collect the lyrics to every top 100 song of the 80s.. unfortunately, there are a lot of songs which I can't find lyrics for online.. out of about 1500 songs I've looked for so far, I'm missing close to 100 songs...

I do however, have most of the songs in mp3 format.. If anyone would like to copy the lyrics down and post them, I'd happily email them the song in mp3 format.. †I find it takes me about 15 minutes or so to properly transcribe lyrics from a single song..

it's probably too much for me to handle all the songs I'm sure to be missing by the end of my search by myself.. but if a handful of people were willing to help me, I'm sure we could knock the list down quickly..

And if you help, I'm of course happy to send a zip file of all the song lyrics I've got, if someone wants a collection of their own.. it would come in handy for creating and solving lyrics quizzes..

All I Have To Do Is Dream

Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Any time, night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz, I'm dreaming my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Any time, night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz, I'm dreaming my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream

.38 Special - Coming Down Tonight
Courtesy of leoslyrics

Girl don't you run and hide
It's not you're runnin' from
You've built your walls so high
Can't see which side you're on
Just give your heart some rope
Let love take over, let me show ya
We're gettin' nowhere baby
It's time to just let go

Chorus:
I'll be knockin' down your wall
It's comin' down tonight
I ain't turnin' back no more no
Stay with me baby
There's nothin' girl
We can't work out in time
Well get ready
It's comin down tonight, get ready
It's comin' down tonight

There ain't no fortress
Gonna keep you safe tonight
You put on that red dress
And come down here lookin' so fine
We all need a hand to hold
In celebration time is wastin'
We're gettin' nowhere baby
It's time to just let go

Chorus

There's nothin' girl
We can't work out in time
You better believe it

I apologise for any formatting errors. All my own fault.

Luther Vandross - Any Love
Courtesy of sing365

I speak to myself sometimes, and I say, "Oh my
In a lot of ways, you're a lucky guy
Now all you need is a chance to try
Any love"

In my heart there's a need to shout
Dyin', screamin', cryin' let me out
Are all those feelings that want to touch
Any love?

What a world for the lonely guy
Sometimes I feel I'm gonna lose my mind
Can anybody tell me just where to find
Any love, any love?

Chorus:
Everyone needs a love no doubt
Any love, Any love
Everybody feels alone without
Any love, any love

I know there's a love waiting
To enter my life, enter my life

Every day as I live
I try to think positive
I pray for someone good to come
Any love

Love is sweet and so divine
And I can't wait for my love life to shine
Can anybody tell me where I can find
Any love, any love?

Chorus

I know there's someone waiting for me
To enter my life, Come into my life

Suddenly I'm up in clear blue skies
Lonely tears start to fill my eyes
I can weep, but I refuse to cry
I've got to keep holding on

To think love is strong
To keep holding on

Chorus

And I know I know I know I know she'll come into my life
Come into my life

Chorus

The Sugarhill Gang - Apache
Courtesy of acelyrics

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Tonto, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Kemosabi, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Custer, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Apache, jump on it, jump on it, wowowowowowowowowo!!
A-hunga-hunga-hunga-hunga

I'm Big Bank, I am the Chief
I got a lot of raps but I'll be real
I never need a horse I like to chill
so I, drive up in my new Seville
My Tribe went down in the hall of fame
Cause I'm the one who shot Jesse James
Pound for pound, I will never break down
(Big Bank!) No sir, I don't mess around

Awowowowowowowowowow!! Ho!
Wowowowowowwowowowowowowowowowowow!!



Like Kemosabi, of course it's me
I'm better known as the Master G
A firing squad, sensed the danger
When they're stung by the rapping ranger
Had a little talk with my medicine man
He said, "Get them squaws, fast as you can"
To all you girls, that wanna join my Tribe
Just move to my rhythm, and feel my vibe
Put up a fuss, in the end you'll agree
When you come inside, my tee-pee
As I said before, you could sense the danger
When you're stung by the rapping ranger
When Silver and I, take a route
All you suckers better step aside
I sting squaws, then I run away
HIYOO Silver, is what I say!

Ho! Ho! Wowowowowowowowow!
Hit it gang!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Aowowowowowowowowowowowo!



A pow-wow, just rock it out
Finger poppin to the break of dawn
Keep it rockin like the stuff that we call maize
(What's that?) Hot buttered popcorn
You just hippa-hoppa-dippa-boppa bang the boogie
woogie betcha wanna boogie again
And you can put me to the test at your request
I rock you out of your mocassin
Kemosabi got down, took off his mask
He kicked off his shoes and did the Monster Mash
Tommy came along, saw what was happenin
His head began to boppin his foot start to clappin
Go slam, dunk, do the jerk
And with the mic is how my smoke signals work
They were jammin off a record that said it best:
"Now what you hear is not a test!"

Aowowowowowowowowowowowo!
A-hunga-hunga-hunga-hunga (2X)

You Don't Know

Scarlett & Black †

(Robin Hild)

Donīt believe the things
That people tell you
I know more
Than they ever could and
Somewhere there is someone
That feels the pain
The same as I do
Anger and confusion I feel inside
But what can I do

You donīt know the way I feel inside
You donīt know how much it hurts my pride
When Iīm crying out to you

Tell me to be strong
Itīs easy to say
But when things go wrong
Itīs so hard to be
You and I share
The secrets of so many years
Weīve been together
Feeling exclusive canīt be desribed
So I canīt share it

You donīt know the way I feel inside
You donīt know how much it hurts my pride
When Iīm crying out to you

You donīt know the way I feel inside
You donīt know how much it hurts my pride
You donīt know

You donīt know the way I feel inside (You donīt know)
You donīt know how much it hurts my pride (You donīt know)

You donīt know the way I feel inside

This is working out better than you thought! †:D †;)

WOW! I did google searches for all of these (and hit Leo's Lyrics a lot too) and didn't find any of those on the list.. most excellent.. guess it helps to have people who search for things differently working on the same problem..

I've been searching for 100 lyrics every day.. trying to cut down my list.. I had it sorted by how I found things.. today was the first day I started searching for the stuff that wasn't already in my CD collection, and I think I couldn't find close to 30 songs.. whereas I usually only came up short maybe 5 songs for every 100.. so it's great that everyone has been able to find the stuff I couldn't

Robert Hazard - Escalator of Life

They got my Mazda at the E-Z Park It
At the rock & roll supermarket
Muzak music make me feel so funny
I went and spent all my money

We're riding on the escalator of life
We're shopping in the human mall
We're dancing on the escalator of life
Won't be happy 'til we have it all
We want it all
Escalator of life - up and down
Escalator of life - round and round

There's 111 choices
Don't listen to those little voices
I don't let the guilty feeling shake me
You can have your cake and eat it baby

We're riding on the escalator of life
We're shopping in the human mall
We're dancing on the escalator of life
Won't be happy 'til we have it all

Hey girl, I'm a personal friend of Gloria Vanderbilt
I got all the gold in the world around my neck
Come ride the steel dinosaur
Run wild in the jungle
Its a Zulu Nation
Seduction, sacrifice, a new sensation
Nothing ever changes

We're riding on the escalator of life
We're shopping in the human mall
We're dancing on the escalator of life
Won't be happy 'til we have it all

Bow Wow Wow - Do You Wanna Hold Me

Children, I wanna warn ya
'Cos I've been to California
Where Mickey Mouse is such a demon
Where Mickey Mouse is as big as a house

Life is wasted on illusions
Tom and Jerry's my solution
Evil gangs will cut the demons
But I belong some real boy
Look around

And I cry all night
Do you wanna hold me, hold me tight
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah
Do you wanna hold me, hold me there

Children, you got to hand me
You just got to understand me
Love and death ain't no physical thing
'Cos making next ain't no one of 'em

And I cry all night
Do you wanna hold me, hold me tight
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah
Do you wanna hold me, hold me there
Do you wanna

And I cry all night
Do you wanna hold me, hold me tight
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah
Do you wanna hold me, hold me there

And I cry all night
There ain't no more confusion in the night
There's someone there to tell me what is right
Do you wanna hold me, hold me tight

And I cry all night
There's only one solution to this life
There's someone there to tell me what it's like
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah
Do you wanna hold me, hold me there
Do you wanna hold me, oh yeah...

Haysi Fantayzee - Shiny Shiny

Good times come to me now (x2)


I ain't lying 'cos there ain't no time
No city
It's a pity 'cos I dress divine
City smokes, people choke
Big Meanie, he's a genie
And we ain't got a hope

No chance (x2)

Well, I feel fine
No, it ain't no crime
I was dreaming of a demon
And I ate a dime
The dime floats
The colonel boasts,
"Send them up the hill, boys,
This ain't no joke!"

No chance (x4)
Shiny Shiny bad times behind me
Shiny Shiny sha na na na
(repeat)

You sure look fine
Your shoes, they shine
I taste your face
Your love is mine
Mercury Dan with a spiky hand
I'm a hot retard
Marquis de Sade

No chance (x4)
Shiny Shiny bad times behind me
Shiny Shiny sha na na na
(repeat)

Saw a cop on the line
Machine gun shine
I was dreaming not believing
That I was alive
My mind broke
The cop, he choked,
"Get out of here, boy,
Or I'll use the colt."

No chance (x2)

You sure look fine
Your shoes, they shine
No heat can compete with
This blue-eyed liar
The child spoke,
"We ain't got a hope,
Press the button, press the button,
It's all remote."

No chance (x4)
Shiny Shiny bad times behind me
Shiny Shiny sha na na na
(repeat out)

Animotion- I Want You

Time and time again
I keep trying to put you out of my mind
I canít concentrate
Youíre the only feeling I can find

But Iím taking over
Itís runniní me over
Seems like it wonít stop
And Iíve lost control
Of my heart and soul

Cause when I see your eyes
Then I know I want you
When I hear your voice
Thatís when I know I want you

Losiní all my defenses
Youíre slipping back inside my head
Itís getting so I canít exist
Without the thought of us together again

And itís taking over
Runniní me over
Seems like it wonít stop
And Iíve lost control
Of my heart and soul

Cause when I see your eyes
Then I know I want you
When I hear your voice
Thatís when I know I want you
When I feel your touch
Then I know I want you
Then I know I want you
I want you

In my life itís been so uncertain
Types have broken and then left me hurtiní
Maybe now I can trust again
With you

And itís taking over
Runniní me over
Seems like it wonít stop
And Iíve lost control
Of my heart and soul

Cause when I see your eyes
Then I know I want you
When I hear your voice
Thatís when I know I want you
When I feel your touch
Then I know I want you
Then I know I want you
I want you

Cause when I see your eyes
Then I know I want you
When I hear your voice
Thatís when I know I want you
When I feel your touch
Then I know I want you
Then I know I want you
I want you

I want you
I want you
I want you (fade)

Animotion- Calling It Love

I lay here beside you, just thinkiní all night
I believe that tomorrow would make things all right
I still tell you I love you, that youíre forever mine
It makes you feel good and it buys me some time

If I told I needed you
But I sent you away

Chorus
Iíve been calling it love
Because I want u to stay
Calling it love
Say youíll stay
Calling it love
Cause Iím too scared to say
Letís call it a day

I never questioned my feelings before
I felt but I felt there was it; nothiní more
But I canít keep denying the truth in my heart
Ooo, the touching and talking but weíre oceans apart

If I told you I needed you
But I sent away

Iíve been calling it love
Cause I want u to stay
Calling it love
Say youíll stay
Calling it love
Cause Iím too scared to say
Letís call it a day

Iíve been spending my life

Now Iím calling my ???

If I told you I needed you
But I sent you away

The Motels- Shame

A very simple statement
A very simple crime
A lot of grief reflecting in how we spend our time
I want to change things
I want to make a change
I'm tired of spending time agonizing yesterdays

Shame on me
Shame on you
Shame on every little thing that we do
Shame on me
Shame on you
Now's there's only one thing that we can do.


Another empty day
Another day comes true
A lot of selfish dreams are waiting here for you
I've got to have you
I've got no one to blame
It's just the two of us
With nothing left to say
But..

Shame on me
Shame on you
Shame on every little thing that we do
Shame on me
Shame on you
Now there's only one thing we can do

Shame on me
Shame on you
Shame on me
Shame on you
I've got to change things
I've got to make a change
I'm tired of spending time agonizing yesterdays

Shame on me

Cinderella- The Last Mile

OOh

OOh yeah!

Me and Billy boy and old lady Jane
We hitched a ride took a fast movin train
got to the top with our heads spinnin round
You never know just what you got until it's comin' back

Down on the farm in the Mississippi shade
The folks down there they told me
Take it day by day

CHORUS
And walk the last mile (before I sleep)
It'll be awhile (before I get my peace)
Last Mile (I walk slowly)
The last mile (I can rest my feet)

I got a long way to go before I reach the light of day
Monkey's on my back I gotta find a better way
Same ole stroy never get just what you want
The more you get the more you want
so tell me to and get picked up
I guess I've always been a traveling man
Cause when I'm movin I can make a stand yeah, yeah

CHORUS

Don't know where I'm going but I know where I've been
Look around me everybody's trying to win

CHORUS
